If @Matt-Kerr is wondering where to get RD04 or RD07 parts, try Greece. I saw the most old Africa Twins I’ve ever seen anywhere, especially in a town called Kavala where there seemed to be almost one every block.

In Italy and Greece we saw a few gas stations like this. Basically a couple of pumps on the edge of the footpath, for one side you ride/drive onto the footpath, the other is what usually would be the roadside carpark.

Over in Bulgaria we spotted an old MIG 21 as part of a local war memorial.

Then it was onto the Buzludzha Monument, a popular stop for motorcycling overlanders,

It’s a pretty rough drive in a motorhome as the road is pretty rough, but would be easy on any bike.
